[glow=blue,2,000]I was just reading something where Steven Stielberg said something along the lines of him getting the movie to direct. It may not be accurate but if it was to happen, I don't think I'd be too worried. I'm more concern about how the characters, and which ones, are represented.[/glow]
[glow=blue,2,300]Problem with remakes is that usually the overall quality is better, but they rarely get the truly classic scenes right. The Prime vs Megatron battle was truly epic, filled with nice touches like Starscream kicking Megs when he's down and Frenzy carrying Meg's fusion cannon when they bolt for it.
The whole coronation scene and Starscream's demise was likewise a classic. Not to mention Unicron's transformation. If they hadn't put it in the trailer it would have been a great twist in the tale. I didn't think much of the cartoon post the movie - it seemed to be rehashing stuff and the comics did it better anyway - especially the UK comics which basically ignored the US editions and did loads of storys post 2006 (movie originally set in 2006, hence the first UK Marvel Story was Target: 2006)[/glow]
I'm gonna add my opion here, it might not be popular and is just my own personal thoughts, so ignore as you choose.
Personally, i'm disappointed with transfans as a whole.
I've read so much "oh it's going to be rubbish anyway, it's gonna fail" etc etc etc. Of course it will as long as you think that. Whatever happened to reserving judgement to you see it. If you keep telling yourself it's gonna be c**p then your gonna be dissapointed from the start before you even start, and it will be no matter what.
I stopped reading the TF forum at the director's message board as people, not just there but generally alot of transfans as a whole are being so anal from aleternate forms, to story etc etc etc.
Does it really matter if megs is not a gun and a tank and so and so is a fire engine not an ambulance? Okay so you might be dissapointed but it's not just you, the original fans, this film will be aimed at (Much like the cartoon series latetly), it's be younger current fans too (Kids) and new fans.
[glow=blue,2,000]I don't think if Shockwave or Ravage were cars like they are in alternators will really be as cool as if they were the origin forms. If it was something close then I wouldn't mind.
But to me its more then there alternative forms, I don't think they will capture the characters personality. In Dreamwave we had Prime saying he wants Megatron's head on a spike, IMO thats really not what Prime would say. He even said "Thats Gross!" in the energon show and the comic. To me thats not Prime.
What I came to realize is, if they base it on G1, then it won't come out G1, the whole vibe will be lost. If they make a new era, then I'm all for it. And I can see that happening and then all the new toys following. And I hope its a good story.[/glow]
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
